Which CDM course is right for me?
In April 2015 the HSE published the new CDM regulations and abolished the role of CDM Coordinator. A person who was a CDM-C can now become a Principal Designer, provided they are a Designer with control over the pre-construction phase of a project. This means an independent CDM-C, who is not a Designer on a project, cannot be appointed as the Principal Designer.
The changes are intended to increase the protection of workers on smaller sites, and the establishment of the role of Principal Designer is intended to force health and safety issues to be considered at an earlier stage in the project.
To assist with your understanding of the regulatory changes, Construction Study Centre has three different courses to offer:
CDM 2015: Awareness
CDM 2015: Principal Designer
CDM 2015: Designers Responsibilities
See the Construction Study Centre course calendar, using the SEARCH tab above, for full details, dates and locations of courses running throughout the country.
